Armstrong courthouse guest stars on TV series

| Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013, 1:36 a.m.

Pennsylvania's Historic County Courthouses, a television series created by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania, showcases courthouses across the state, and the Armstrong County Courthouse will be featured in the series.

Pennsylvania Cable Network filmed footage of the exterior, courtrooms, bell tower and historic jail on May 29.

The series aired its first show in August and will continue airing the five courthouses that were selected until late September. The Armstrong County Courthouse program will air at 7 p.m. Sept. 26 and at 2 p.m. Sept. 28 on PCN.

County Commissioner Robert T. Bower will be featured on a walk through the courthouse and will host the show. Armstrong County Judge James J. Panchik will host a segment and give a history of some prominent judges in the county. Audiences can expect to see areas of the courthouse featured on the show that they may have never seen and hear the rich history of the county and its courthouse, a PCN spokesperson said.

For more information on the television series, contact Kevin Andrews at the Armstrong County Tourist Bureau at 724-543-4003.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
